Derive third rhythmic pattern from two existing patterns

Attibution: DivKid

An AND circuit will only go high if all its inputs are high.

If you combine two rhythmic patterns in an AND circuit, you can derive a third accent rhythm from where the two rhythms overlap. This technique works particularly well with inputs such as Euclidean sequences and clocks that have a 50% duty cycles, and less well with just triggers as inputs (because the high signals of each input must overlap from time to time in order to derive a new rhythm).
